EDIT: So I dug up the carton box the geno came in and there was a QR code on there. I checked it at Pfizers website and it checked out legit. Also I am not fanboying or anything, but RB is the best source I have dealt with, ever. Anyone who had done business with this guy knows how serious he takes his business and to how great lengths he goes to make his customers happy, honestly like no other source I used in the past. And I am really sorry that this blood test might hurt his reputation. Keep in mind that 1) IGF-1 testing is always pretty inaccurate (even when testing the same blood sample twice with the same machine) and 2) I was on a ketogenic diet with about 60g carbs per day which definitely messes with IGF1 and 3) I can tell by feels that the genos are doing their job (and I have tried hygetropin, genotropin and norditropin and humas in the past). So what I do now is to just do a retest in about 1-2 months and will post it up. Have a great day.
So this lab test shows both TRT (DP 100mg TestC per week + 2x 250iu HcG per week + 2x 0.25mg anastrozole) and 1.5iu genotropin per day.
TRT is dialled in very well. Despite my total T being high as you can see, the free T is perfectly mid range (ever since I had quite high SHBG for some reason). I do feel quite good at this level and feel it is also sustainable.
As to the genotropin and the IGF-1 test: my baseline was 146 and the 1.5iu were not able to raise it much unfortunately.
In the past I achieved a VERY high IGF1 with hygetropin but with the genotropin I can clearly tell this is the real deal. Great sleep, hair and nail growth, keeping lean without much effort, great sense of wellbeing and vitality. Actually I was really hoping/expecting to see a number in the 300-400 but unfortunately this is not what happened. I have absolutely no doubt the genos are legit. There are 2 things that could have messed up my IGF-1 result:
1) I am on a strict ketogenic diet (less than 50g carbs per day) and insulin is very well known to significantly raise IGF1 or a lack thereof reduce it
2) IGF-1 testing per se is quite unreliable and different labs using the same blood sample often get quite different results (and even the same lab running the SAME blood sample with the same machine often get quite a variation in their testing).
I am actually a person that very much relies on lab reports as opposed to "going by feels" and why the result is so unexpectedly low is honestly beyond me.
I guess I will repeat the test in 1-2 months. I can only hope RB really sent me real stuff or stuff that is not degraded, but IMHO he is the best source I have ever dealt with and the genos really do seem legit and also their effects are quite noticeable with no sides whatsoever (1kg water retention within the first 2 weeks which has gone though).
If anyone has thoughts as to why IGF1 could be that low, please chime in.
